After One Week in Prison, Farouk Lawan & Boniface Enemalo are Granted N10 Million Bail Each



One week after the duo of Farouk Lawan and Boniface Enemalo were arraigned in Court for allegedly obtaining bribe during investigations on the fuel subsidy fraud, they have been granted bail at N10 million each.

Channels TV reports that the presiding judge, Justice Mudashiru Oniyangi of the Federal Capital Territory high court, Abuja granted them bail this morning. He also asked the lawmakers to deposit their travel documents with the court registrar.

Lawan and Enemalo were arraigned by the police on a seven-count charge of corruptly soliciting bribe of $3 million (N450 million) from an independent oil marketer, Femi Otedola. The bribe was allegedly to ensure that Otedola’s company, Zenon Oil and Gas was removed from the list of indicted oil marketers in the infamous fuel subsidy scam.

The trial has been set for the 10th and 17th of April 2013.
